Dated 2013 You know, the emerging conservative leader in the US Senate- same one the GOP old-guard spent million$ trying to defeat- that one: Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 - May 2008, Cruz was the first Hispanic Solicitor General in Texas, the youngest Solicitor General in the entire country, and had the longest tenure in Texas history.

SUPREME COURT Associate Justice FRANCIS JARDELEZA THE Ilonggos are proud of newly appointed Supreme Court Associate Justice Francis Jardeleza. The former Solicitor General was the most outstanding student of the University of the Philippines from high school up to college at the College of Law. He was also a Bar topnotcher. A popular practicing lawyer, the new Supreme Court Associate Justice used to handle the cases of big-shot clientele in Metro Manila before he was appointed Solicitor General. Like a shining meteor in a cloudy sky, his appointment to the highest court of the land will indeed contribute legal wisdom, knowledge and prestige to the office – something that the people have been earnestly yearning for eons of years now. Our congratulations to the new Supreme Court Associate Justice! PN.Lapsus
Add another issue to the list of irritants between the Executive and the Judiciary: Malacanang Palace is backing Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza in his bid to be included in the list of nominees for the Supreme Court seat vacated by the retirement of Associate Justice Roberto Abad.
By Sunder Rajan: This is an article as to how feverishly Bhardwaj worked to help Qutorouchi go free in Bofors case -Photos - Ottavio Quattrocchi & Indian soldiers using Bofors guns. International: Bofors case: Muddy spot on Singh’s white clothes When Prime Minister Manmohan Singh claims to be cleansing the administration, he should not be seen as a party to the withdrawal of the case against Ottavio Quattrocchi who received the commission of Rs.640 million in the purchase of the Bofors guns. The CBI's u-turn is visible although the hand behind it is not. Nonetheless, it is an open secret that he was a friend of Sonia Gandhi's family in India and Italy. The Prime Minister's defence that they acted on legal advice from the Attorney General, Solicitor General and the Law Minister does not hold water when all three are the government appointees. If the Prime Minister is so confident, let him appoint a panel of retired Chief Justices of India to go into the case. It is true that the Malaysian courts cleared ...

Gopal Subramanium and Rohinton Nariman are top lawyers of the country __both were Solicitor Generals of India. now their names are being recommended by the SC collegium for elevation to SC. Hope they would make exceptionally good Judges as well. Among the sitting Judges of US SC, Chief Justice John Roberts before elevation (by former President George Bush Jr) had not occupied any judicial office and he is directly elevated from the bar as the Chief Justice of US Supreme Court. Justice Elena Kagan of US Supreme Court was Dean of Harvard Law School and then Solicitor General (appointed by President Obama) for a short period before being elevated as US SC Judge. she was also not a Judge before being appointed to the highest Court. Both Mr.Subramanium and Mr.R.F.Nariman are comparable to them. Hope they would make us proud. Indian Supreme Court has got wide jurisdiction and many of the specialized matters are directly taken up by SC (by way of statutory appeal from Tribunals/Specialized bodies) without t ...
Where the Executive and Legislative branches are elected by the people, members of the Judicial Branch are appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Article III of the Constitution, which establishes the Judicial Branch, leaves Congress significant discretion to determine the shape and structure of the federal judiciary. Even the number of Supreme Court Justices is left to Congress — at times there have been as few as six, while the current number (nine, with one Chief Justice and eight Associate Justices) has only been in place since 1869. The Constitution also grants Congress the power to establish courts inferior to the Supreme Court, and to that end Congress has established the United States district courts, which try most federal cases, and 13 United States courts of appeals, which review appealed district court cases. Federal judges can only be removed through impeachment by the House of Representatives and conviction in the Senate. Judges and justices serve no fixed term — they se ...
The work related to the drafting of various bills, Acts, legislations etc. , appointment of judges, law officers etc., is done by the Ministry of Law, Justice & Company Affairs having its office at 5th Floor, Shastri Bhawan, New Delhi. The work within the law ministry is divided into three parts, each part being looked after by a separate department and each department being headed by a separate Secretary. The main department is the Deptt. of Legal Affairs, which renders advice to various Ministries/Departments of the Government of India (including PSUs) on legal matters and also carries out drafting work on their behalf. The deptt. also attends to the litigation work of the Central Government in the Supreme Court, various High Courts, Tribunals and some of the subordinate courts. This department is also concerned with entering into treaties and agreements with foreign Governments in matters of civil law, authorizing officers of the Central Government to execute contracts and assurance of property on beha ...
In a first, collegium moots two lawyers as Supreme Court judges In an unprecedented decision, the collegium headed by Chief Justice of India RM Lodha has recommended names of two previous solicitors general — Gopal Subramaniam and RF Nariman — to the government for appointment as judges of the Supreme Court. The recommendation has to be approved by the government, and it was not clear whether the nod would come during the last three days of the UPA government or whether it would have to wait for the new dispensation. All other formalities for appointment of 58-year-old Nariman and 56-year-old Subramaniam have been completed. The retirement age for SC judges is 65, which will give them unusually long stints at the bench. Unlike in the United States, Supreme Court judges in India are seldom appointed from among members of the bar. Justice N Santosh Hegde was the last lawyer to have been elevated directly to the SC. Hegde was appointed as a judge of the apex court in 1999, less than a year after he was a ...

The dismissed cases involved the alleged accumulation of P200 billion in ill-gotten wealth and the acquisition of media networks IBC-13, BBC-2 and RPN-9; the alleged use of De Soleil Apparel for dollar salting; and the alleged acquisition and operation of the bus company Pantranco North Express Inc.

Include 6 firms, ERC in Meralco case–SC By Jerome Aning Philippine Daily Inquirer 2:44 am | Friday, January 10th, 2014 The High Court also said the government must answer the allegations raised by the petitioners in the suit, including their claims that the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) colluded with the power firms and that the agency’s rule on the approval of generation cost increase was unconstitutional. Supreme Court spokesman Theodore Te said the tribunal denied a motion by the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) dated Jan. 2 seeking to be excused from commenting on the petitions. The OSG, which represents the ERC and the Department of Energy (DOE), was given until Jan. 17 to file its comment. The OSG earlier said Meralco had the burden of defending the public respondents since the ERC and the DOE were merely “nominal parties.” The ERC, however, disagreed with the OSG position and filed a 71-page comment on the suit on Wednesday. Te said the high tribunal gave the petitioners until Jan ...
Justice Ganguly complains to CJI, says he wasn't addressed correctly Ashok Bagriya ,Arijit Sen CNN-IBN | 23- Dec-2013 17:42 PM New Delhi: Caught in the line of fire in an alleged sexual assault case, retired Supreme Court judge AK Ganguly has approached the Chief Justice of India P Sathasivam saying that his side of the story is not being heard. "I have been distressed by some recent happenings. I am anguished that the Supreme Court under your Lordship did not address me correctly," he wrote in a letter to CJI Sathasivam. Ganguly in his 8-page letter to the CJI has also alleged that he is being targeted for his judgments. "There is a concerted move to tarnish my image as I had the unfortunate duty of rendering certain judgments against powerful interests," he said. He has also raised a voice of protest over the leaking of the affidavit, which was submitted before the Supreme Court appointed committee, to the media. The committee which investigated the allegations had called his behaviour "unwelcome" and o ...
I HAD A HEARING WITH FORMER JUSTICE GANGULY, WBHRC, AT BHAVANI BHAVAN - Today dated 23/12/2013 I had a hearing with the former justice A.K. Ganguly, Chairman of West Bengal Human Rights Commission at Bhavani Bhavan, Kolkata. On 17 December I sent a letter to him and urge him that he should not resign and protect the philosophy, very foundation of human rights. I have showed him the alleged copy of said Affidavit dated 29 November, done at Bangalore by the said Law intern which I have received from Internet. This Affidavit is to be verified with original by WBHRC. Supreme Court committee submitted its report on 27 December. So how the committee scrutinized this alleged Affidavit of the said law intern, of which purported excerpts published in Media by Additional Solicitor General Indira Jaising. It is to be noted that in Bengali papers translated this Affidavit in Bengali language and published.

Cancellation of mother-baby program was unconstitutional The BC Supreme Court has released its decision in Inglis v. Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General of BC. We are happy to announce that the Court agreed with the plaintiffs, as well as the interveners West Coast LEAF and the BC Civil Liberties Association, that the provincial government’s decision to close the mother-baby program at the Alouette Correctional Centre for Women (ACCW) was unconstitutional and violated the rights of both mothers and their infants. The Court held that mothers’ and babies’ equality rights, as well as their rights to security of the person, were violated by the government’s decision to end the program.

But Kerry is mistaken. In 2008, the U.S Supreme Court ruled that the states are not compelled to comply with decisions made by the U.N.’s International Criminal Court. At the time the government said Texas had to cancel the execution of Jose E. Medellin, another Mexican national who was convicted in the 1993 gang rape and murder of two Houston girls. But the then-Solicitor General of Texas Ted Cruz fought the ruling to the High Court, where he won and set a major precedent for the states against the United Nations. Medellin was executed 4 months later.

Lord Sevele denies that Govt tried to freeze-out Cauchi Tonga's former Prime Minister Lord Sevele, a witness at the Nuku’alofa Supreme Court this afternoon, denied suggestions that his government had tried to “freeze-out” the former Attorney General John Cauchi. Giving evidence as the second of three witnesses called by the defendant, the Government of Tonga, on the fourth-day of a civil jury trial, Lord Sevele who was Prime Minister from 2008 and for most part of 2010, was questioned by the current Attorney General Neil Adsett. Lord Sevele said that it was not true to say that government had removed Cauchi’s responsibilities as Attorney General and given to it other people. Lord Sevele also said there was a misunderstanding in regards to the role of Tonga’s Law Lords. The government sought advice from the Solicitor General, the Attorney General or the Crown Law office and other lawyers when it saw fit. The Law Lords were appointed by the king under his constitutional power and prerogative to di ...

Chief Justice Jose Abad Santos is remembered to have served the Philippines with utmost honor and patriotism during its most trying time. He was executed by the Japanese during World War II for refusing to collaborate. When war broke out in December of 1941 Abad Santos was serving as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in the Commonwealth of the Philippines. That same month the Japanese started to land in the Philippines, and there was a need to reorganize the system of the Commonwealth Government. Abad Santos was chosen to be the Chief Justice and to concurrently serve as a member of the Cabinet of the newly organized government. He was sworn in by President Quezon on December 24, 1941. Two days after Abad Santos took his oath, as the Japanese troops were closing in on Manila, General Douglas MacArthur saw it fit to declare Manila an Open City in order to prevent the destruction of the capital by the Japanese forces. President Quezon, Vice-President Osmeña, Chief Justice Abad Santos, and other hig ...

In this day of celebration, the LGBT community needs to keep in mind that this battle was won with the support of many of our straight brothers and sisters in our various communities including lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies who led the Prop 8 fight all the up to the Supreme Court. It would also be wise to remember that no matter what your opinion of President Obama, his appointments to the Supreme Court helped pave the way to this victory - I shudder to think who McCain or Romney would have appointed in his place. Today gives me hope for our country - it has been a while since I have felt that hope.
A cultural-political irony. Conservative Republican Ted Olson, the former Solicitor General of the United States, meaning the guy that represented the United States in cases at the Supreme Court, usually presenting the conservative Republican position of the President that appointed him [George W Bush], is the guy that served as the lead attorney on the winning side of one of today's 2 *** marriage cases. Mr Olson's wife was on board the plane that was flown into the Pentagon during the Sept 11 attacks. He was on the phone with her as it was happening. Enormous tragedy. Fortunately he got to personally experience a more positive day in American history. Equality among human beings works best when it applies to everybody.
Opinion: How the armed forces were deceived on rank pay A lawyer looks at the defense ministry reference of the Rank Pay issue to the Attorney General and explains why he lacks confidence that this will lead to an equitable resolution. The Defense Minister A.K. Antony has referred the rank pay issue to the Attorney General, with the armed forces getting an opportunity to brief the AG on their interpretation of the orders issued by the Supreme Court last year, currently disputed by the defense ministry. But this reference will not necessarily lead to a resolution of the issue, since similar measures taken earlier have failed to reach equitable conclusions. For instance, in March of 2012, the defense minister had asked the Army and the Ministry to submit to the Solicitor General their respective views on a disability and war injury pensions issue arising from the judgment in the case of former Vice Chief of the Army, Lieutenant General Vijay Oberoi, and directed the ministry not to file appeals before the S ...
We have a TRAITOR on the supreme court !! * Elena Kagan’s views render her the first Supreme Court Justice who actively favors the introduction of Sharia Law into national Constitutions and legal systems. It’s unprecedented in American history. We now have a liberal, pro-Sharia justice sitting on the highest court in the land. And is it any wonder? After all, as Obama’s Solicitor General, it was Kagan who blocked as many as nine lawsuits from being heard by the Supreme Court. Although the nine cases listed on the High Court’s docket had nothing to do with Obama’s eligibility issues, there is no arguing Kagan’s advocacy for Islamic rule and Sharia Law as evidenced below. What do you want to bet that she refuses to recuse herself on any Sharia-related decision and instead leads the charge to legitimize Sharia Law in America? Christine Brim of the Center for Security Policy summarized Kagans’ 2003-2009 career as Dean of Harvard Law School in the following five points. They tell the story of Ele ...
SC Asked To Break Deadlock In Hacienda Luisita Special Audit The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), through the Office of the Solicitor General, filed Tuesday afternoon, May 28, a motion with the Supreme Court to clarify various issues arising from the special purpose audit ordered by the latter of the pertinent financial records of Hacienda Luisita, Inc. (HLI) and Centennary Holdings, Inc. (CHI). This move was prompted by the recent impasse in the process to select a reputable accounting firm to conduct the said special audit, and the disagreement among the parties in the Hacienda Luisita case on which firm should be selected, after a vote on 17 May 2013 was conducted on a motion to disqualify two of the three interested accounting firms. DAR Secretary Virgilio G. De Los Reyes maintained that the special audit on HLI and CHI, with respect to the gross proceeds arising from the conversion of two lots with an area of 500 hectares and the expropriation of a portion for SCTEX, cannot proceed unless all the ...
_Obama asks Supreme Court not to hear Armenian Genocide-era insurance claims case._ Washington,DC. – The Obama Administration has urged the Supreme Court not to hear the appeal of the Ninth Circuit's 2012 decision striking down a California law extending the statute of limitations on Armenian Genocide-era life insurance claims,reported the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA). "President Obama, rather than filing a brief based on the merits of this case, chose instead - on the eve of Prime Minister Erdogan's visit to Washington,DC - to send Ankara a political gift by both deepening his Administration's complicity in the denial of the Armenian Genocide and also obstructing justice for American citizens seeking redress through the U.S. courts",said ANCA Executive Director Aram Hamparian. "We will,despite the President's retreat from principle,persevere in the pursuit of the justice owed the Armenian nation". In a 27-page brief submitted to the Supreme Court the U.S. Solicitor General argues that ...
Greetings, While the New York Times ran an article on Saturday, February 16 about Farmer Bowman, the article failed to include the fact that on the previous day, Friday, February 15, the Supreme Court granted Obama's Solicitor General the opportunity to argue in support of Monsanto's patents for 10 minutes. The oral arguments are now 40 minutes for Monsanto and only 30 minutes for Farmer Bowman. Justice may be blind, but time is of the essence.

Supreme Court scanner on laws protecting children Feb 8, 2013, 01.33 AM IST New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday decided to take stock of implementation of child welfare legislations — Right to Free and Compulsory Education, Protection of Children from Sexual Assault Act, and the Juvenile Justice Act - and asked all states to file status reports. The directive from a bench of Justices S S Nijjar and M Y Eqbal came in a case relating to a suo motu decision taken by the court to examine steps taken to stop exploitation of children. Additional Solicitor General Indira Jaising informed the court that several states were lagging in implementing the central legislations aimed to ameliorate the plight of children. She said every state must focus on implementing the Right to Education Act (RTE) 2009, Protection of Children from Sexual Assault Act 2012 and Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act 2000. The court examined her suggestions and heard submissions made by the amicus curiae Aparna Bha ...
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas February 4, 2013 | Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is an undeniably smart man. Cruz is by all accounts a brilliant litigator, one talented enough in the courtroom to clerk for a Supreme Court Justice and win a number of difficult cases as Texas’ Solicitor General. It wouldn't have been crazy to expect that Cruz would bring a degree of argumentative rigor into the Senate after his victory in the 2012 election. Well, Cruz had two golden opportunities to showcase his keen analytical mind, as he sits on both Senate committees that held high profile hearings last week, one on gun violence prevention, the other on Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE)’s nomination to be Secretary of Defense. And Cruz distinguished himself alright. Just not in the way one might have hoped. The Senator misrepresented official documents to the point of falsehood, placed the words of an raving call-in viewer on a television show in Hagel’s mouth, and played “six degrees of guilt by association” with Hagel’s record . ...

Posted on 01/04/2013 at 7:00 pm by JM Ashby 67 Republicans voted against relief for Hurricane Sandy victims today, but only 1 single Republican voted against additional funding for the hopeless legal defense of DOMA. via ThinkProgress On a 228-196 vote, the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives adopted a rules package for the 113th Congress that explicitly authorizes the House’s legal arm to spend taxpayer dollars to defend the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). They embraced this unnecessary spending minutes after newly re-elected Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) warned that the rising national debt was an “anchor” weighing down the American Dream. At the behest of John Boehner and Eric Cantor, former Solicitor General Paul Clement will continue preparing to face the Supreme Court again.

SC invites khaps to hear their views, Centre for curbs on them New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday invited 'khap panchayats' to hear their views before issuing any order to stop them from harassing and killing couples, particularly women in name of family's honour for entering into inter-caste or intra-gotra marriages. The Centre, however, fervently pleaded with the apex court to put in place a mechanism to monitor the crime against women by khap panchayats, the caste-based councils, as the police has not been able to protect the women facing ordeal at their hands. A bench of justices Aftab Alam and Ranjana Prakash Desai, however, said before passing any order it would like to hear the views of kKhap panchayats and said they can come before it on the next date of hearing on January 14. In the meantime, the bench said as a pilot project it would examine the situation in three districts where the khap panchayats are very active and summoned the superintendents of police of Rohtak and Jind districts of Ha ...

We all can get angry with people who don't share our views and values, attributing to them the worst motives. But permit me a personal note. Robert Bork died today. He was a conservative, lionized by the right, condemned by the left, rejected by the Senate for the Supreme Court. But I knew him as a man of great honor, extraordinary wit, and deep commitment. Back in 1973, when he was Solicitor General in the Ford administration, he hired me as an assistant. And although we disagreed on many issues, he was always willing to listen carefully and debate forcefully. I admired his intellect and his courage. He cared deeply about America.
Legal luminaries as well as judges continued to pay tributes to the late Justice Kayode Eso as the Supreme Court held a special court session in his honour Friday. Justice Eso, died in a London hospital on Friday November 16, at 87. In a valedictory speech in honour of the late jurist, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Aloma Mariam Mukhtar, who led a full panel of thirteen justices of the apex court noted that, the session was not to mourn but to "celebrate and pay tribute to a deserving icon of the legal profession." According to her Justice Kayode Eso symbolised the characteristics of a thoroughbred Nigerian with the capacity to reside in any part of the country freely, and contributing immensely to the development of any community he found himself. The CJN said: "Hon. Justice Kayode Eso's career commenced on a rather dramatic note as his exceptional brilliance and due diligence shot him pass the position of Solicitor General, which was his next promotion as the Legal Draftsman, straight to the ...

Once again, the US Senate sold us out! Well, someone figured out why Obama nominated Elana Kagan for the Supreme Court... Pull up the Supreme Courts website, go to the docket and search for Obama. She was the Solicitor General for all the suits against him filed with the Supreme Court to show proof of natural born citizenship.. He owed her big time. All of the requests were denied of course. They were never heard. It just keeps getting deeper and deeper, doesn't it? The American people mean nothing any longer. It's all about payback time for those who compromised themselves to elect someone that really has no true right to even be there.

India's most expensive lawyer 54 year old Harish Salve, former Solicitor General of India, is, arguably, today's most expensive lawyer in India. He has represented high-profile cases like Mulayam Singh Yadav, Prakash Singh Badal and Lalit Modi but his reputation (and legal fees!) started sky-rocketing after he won Mukesh Ambani's gas dispute against brother Anil who was represented by Ram Jethmalani. His latest on-going-case is representing Ratan Tata who has gone to the Supreme Court claiming that his privacy has been violated in the Nira Radia tapes scandal. Hiring Harish Salve as lawyer does not come cheap. He charges a massive fee of Rs 30 lakhs per day. His fees alone is supposed to have cost Mukesh Ambani a whopping Rs 15 crore. Even this pales into insignificance when you compare it with the Rs 60 crore which he is supposed to have collected in the Forest Case of TN Godavarman Thirumulpad. In addition, he has to be provided overnight five-star suites and first class air-tickets. A dinner for him a ...
Right now is a great time to be a Supreme Court aficionado. There’s a big new book out about the Court, Jeffrey Toobin’s The Oath (affiliate link). And the new SCOTUS Term starts in just a few days, on Monday, October 1 . Given the time of the year, it’s not surprising that SCOTUS preview events are as common as Ninth Circuit reversals pro se cert petitions. I attended one sponsored by the Federalist Society earlier this month, where Kannon Shanmugam of Williams & Connolly offered excellent insights into October Term 2012. Our Supreme Court correspondent here at Above the Law, Matt Kaiser, went to a preview talk sponsored by the American Constitution Society (which he turned into Kaiser’s Guide To Bluffing Your Way Through Knowledge About The Supreme Court’s New Term ). That sounds like more than enough SCOTUS previews. But I couldn’t help myself from attending one more, due to the starpower of the panelists: Paul Clement , the former solicitor general who’s now a partner at Bancroft , and T ...
The former US Solicitor General, Ted Olson, is at the heart of the Republican legal establishment, but he’s also known as the attorney who overturned California’s ban on same-sex marriage. This week, the US Supreme Court will decide whether to review the decision removing the ban.
Stay commissioning of Kudankulam till safety steps are applied, Prashant Bhushan urges Supreme Court TODAY'S PAPER » NATIONAL New Delhi, September 21, 2012 J. VENKATESAN SHARE · PRINT · T+ Of 17 recommendations of AERB, only six have been complied with, he says The safety measures recommended by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB) are crucial and the Kudankulam nuclear power plant should not be allowed to be commissioned without implementing these measures, argued counsel Prashant Bhushan in the Supreme Court on Thursday. Appearing for petitioner G. Sundararajan, social activist, he submitted before a Bench of Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra that the AERB had recommended 17 safety measures, of which only six were complied with and 11 yet to be put in place. “The said recommendations are extremely critical to the safety of the plant and it could not be allowed to run even for a day without adequate safety and backup features in place.” Mr. Bhushan said that immediately after ...

The Obama Administration urged the Supreme Court on Monday to uphold the University of Texas's use of race in selecting its incoming class of students, arguing that the university needed to add that factor to assure that more minorities are enrolled.' It was not enough, the government argued in a new brief , to simply admit the students who finished in the top ten percent of their high school class in the state. The Court will hold a hearing on the case of Fisher v. University of Texas (docket 11-345) on October 10 ' in the second week of its new Term.' The case is to be decided by an eight-member Court, since Justice Elena Kagan has taken herself out of'the case, presumably because she had some role in it when she was U.S. Solicitor General before joining the Court. Since the Court last ruled on affirmative action in college admissions, nine years ago in the case of Grutter v. Bollinger , the Court's membership has changed markedly.' Three of the Justices who were in the majority in that 5-4 ruling, and ...
I read yesterday (Time Magazine) that Robert Jackson, former Supreme Court Justice, former prosecutor at Nuremberg, and Solicitor General under FDR, won a Supreme Court case (unanimous decision) which found that the right to bear arms is one "which exists where the arms are borne in the militia or some other military organization provided for by law and intended for the protection of the state." No less a conservative than Chief Justice Warren Burger described the "new" and "recent" (1970s) interpretation of the Second Amendment a "one of the greatest pieces of fraud.I repeat the word "fraud".on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime." Gun control has been in effect through both the states, since 1813 in Louisiana and Kentucky, and the national government, since 1934. The Second Amendment is clear. And the tortured interpretation by this Supreme Court is not worthy of the country. Time for states and localities to engage in nullification.
Remember a Secularist is nothing but a fanatic Anti-Hindu. The secular Sonia - Manmohan government now says, it is committed to deporting illegal migrants, but only lawfully. -Within a day of the issue being raised in Parliament, the Centre on Thursday told the Supreme Court that it was committed to deporting illegal Bangladeshi migrants, but only lawfully. At the same time, it said the demand for identifying and deleting the names of alleged 41 lakh doubtful voters from the list of 2006 on the basis of religious and linguistic profiling would prima facie be illegal, arbitrary and violative of the secular and democratic credentials of India. Additional Solicitor General Mohan Jain told a Bench of Justices P. Sathasivam and Ranjan Gogoi, hearing a public interest litigation petition filed by the Assam Public Works seeking a direction for deportation of illegal migrants, said the government of India, as a matter of policy, “does not support any kind of illegal migration either into its territory or illega ...
he CBI today vehemently opposed in the Supreme Court any permission for NRI businessman and controversial Vectra company chief Ravinder Rishi to visit the United Kingdom for medical treatment of his various ailments, saying he may not return. Appearing before a bench of justices Altamas Kabir and J Chelameswar, Additional Solicitor General Haren Raval submitted that the investigating agency was apprehensive that if Rishi waThe ASG stated that the accused' alleged role in the deal and conduct during the investigation does not inspire confidence and his plea to travel abroad was only an "attempt to evoke the sympathy of this court". The CBI placed before the bench various medical reports including sonography to state "there is no danger" to his health. Responding to certain queries from the bench, which was not convinced with the CBI's argument, the ASG maintained that there were certain facts which cannot be stated in an affidavit
Senator Diane Feinstein made a statement on Monday saying that Obama’s White House needs to face the fact that some very dangerous security leaks came out of it. On Thursday, Feinstein has “walked back” what she said on Monday. “Walked back” is political speak for “I ticked off the President, so now I have to cover my tracks.” Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker also got caught in Obama’s wrath for something that he said that Obama didn’t like. I guess my question to both Senator Feinstein and Mayor Booker is: “were you lying then, or are you lying now?” Obama sent his Solicitor General to argue that Obamacare really was a tax instead of a mandate; yet when the Supreme Court ruled it as a tax, Obama and his minions furiously denied that it was a tax and that in reality it is a “penalty”. You can’t have it both ways, Mr. Obama, so what’s wrong with Obamacare being the largest tax increase in American history? You’re up for re-election, you say? The voters might get angry b ...
25 JUL, 2012, 09.52 PM IST, PTI Centre told to allot natural gas to Ahmedabad at Delhi price AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat High Court today directed the Centre to allocate natural gas, including CNG, to Ahmedabad city at the same price as it supplies to Delhi and Mumbai under the Administered Price Mechanism (APM). "Government of India is directed to allot natural gas for domestic and vehicular usage to the city of Ahmedabad at the same price at which is it supplied to Delhi and Mumbai to enforce the righ of equality," the Division Bench of Chief Justice Bhaskar Bhattacharya and Justice J B Pardiwala said. The Bench directed the Centre to immediately implement the order and declined to grant a stay on the ruling for the Central Government to approach the Supreme Court. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is available in the city at Rs 53 per kg, while it is priced at Rs 38.35 a kg in Delhi. The HC gave the direction while hearing a petition of environmental NGO Dhanghdhra Prakruti Mandal. The petition said though as pe ...
Dear Fellow American: Polls show that all across this nation Americans are waking up to Obama's radical agenda as a result of the recent Supreme Court decision. They realize they have been LIED to. President Obama repeatedly said his Health Care plan was NOT a tax. But when his Solicitor General went before the Supreme Court, he argued that Obamacare was legal — that the Federal Government could force you and me and every citizen to purchase private health insurance — because Obamacare is a TAX! Tell the American people one thing, tell the Supreme Court another. I call this a bold-faced lie. Repeatedly Obama said Obamacare is not a tax. Recently pollster Pat Caddell suggested that Americans need a new battle cry: Reject the lie, repeal ObamaTax! He's right! Already, the League has been out front exposing Obama's very dangerous program to radically change our Health Care system. *** Morris, the famous Fox News analyst, has joined with me and the League to back our national ad campaign. *** agrees wit . ...
..New Delhi, July 9 (IANS) The government Monday told the Supreme Court that Bihar engineer Fasih Mehmood had been detained by the Saudi Arabian authorities on suspicion of terror links. Additional Solicitor General Gourab Banerji told the apex court bench headed by Justice P. Sathasivam and Justice Rajan Gogoi that the Saudi authorities had informed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) June 26 that Mehmood was under their detention. Mehmood, 35, employed as engineer in Saudi Arabia, was allegedly picked up by the Saudi authorities from Al Jubal May 13 for suspected terror links. Banerji told the court that the habeas corpus petition by Mehmood's wife Nikhat Praveen had become infructuous and it should be disposed of. Justice Sathasivam told counsel for Nikhat Praveen that it would record the statement of ASG Banerji and dispose of the matter. The court said that there were procedures to be followed to get Mehmood back in India, that too, if the government was interested. The court directed the listi ...
Former Attorney General Martin Amidu is challenging claims the state sought to settle out of court an amount of 1.5 billion dollars being demanded by African Automobile Limited for some cross country vehicles they imported for government in 2001. The former A-G insists he had no knowledge of the supposed attempt to make any out of court settlement even though he was in office at the time. Mr. Amidu in his latest statement also suggests massive rot at his former office and points to a Supreme Court ruling that has serious implications for African Automobile’s claims about contractual relations with the state. Below is the full statement MARTIN AMIDU ON GALLOPERS, SETTLEMENTS AND THE HALLOWED TRADITIONS OF THE OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL: BY MARTIN A. B. K. AMIDU I have read and heard various versions of the story, narrative, and discourse on what the former Minister of Local Government and Rural Development describes as: “Press Statement, The Galloper II Vehicles.” July 2011 features prominently a ...
How to Explain the Obamacare Decision A recent Pew Research Center poll shows that 45 percent of Americans aren’t sure what the Supreme Court ruling— upholding the Affordable Health Care Act—actually did. Both President Obama and Mitt Romney seem, unfortunately, to be among that number. Both have said things that further muddles public understanding of the purpose of the Supreme Court. And this confusion makes it more difficult to understand the strengths—and considerable weaknesses—of the decision in National Federation of Independent Businesses v. Sebelius. For his part, Obama says that the individual mandate is not a tax, even though the Court upheld the law on that basis and his own Solicitor General had made such an argument before the court. Obama has been cavalier in his defiance of law and court decisions. His Administration has chosen not to enforce laws, including one prohibiting illegal immigration, ironic in light of the Supreme Court’s recent decision upholding part of an Arizona ...

LOL!!! The 2,700 PAGES of the working, middle and upper class tax hiking Obamacare ARE TOO TALL FOR THE PICTURE. Chief of Staff Jack Lew said it isn't a tax, but the Solicitor General argued before the Supreme Court that it can and should be considered as tax.
Photo of the Day: President Obama calls Solicitor General Verrilli after the Supreme Court's ruling on health reform
Jack Lew, the Obama White House Chief of Staff, was trying to persuade Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that Obamacare was not a tax. But it didn’t work out so well for Lew when Wallace played audio of the Obama lawyer arguing that Obamacare was a tax in front of the Supreme Court.
Please hear me, when I say this. I discuss and debate not on emotions but on fact. My 2 previous posts, one a quote by Justice Roberts in his decision on Obama Care and the other by the Solicitor General who defened Obamacare at the Supreme Court as a Tax. Whether or not you believe that Obamacare is good or bad, it cannot be denied that it is tax and if it were not a tax it would have been found unconstitutional.
Listening to Paul Clement, the 43rd Solicitor General of the US. He could be a Supreme Court nominee under a President Romney.

woman, before she was appointed and confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice, was President Obama's Solicitor General. Her job as Solicitor General would have been to represent the Obama administration and the Affordable Health Care Act during the recently concluded Supreme Court hearings on the matter. She is about to rule on the legislation, which only two years ago, it was her job to represent and defend before the Supreme Court.
Supreme Court upholds key provision in SB1070 -- Hope was in at the Court today when the opinion was read: "In a split decision that was unanimous on its key provision, with Justice Anthony Kennedy delivering the majority opinion, the court upheld to a limited extent, a highly controversial statute that allowed Arizona police officers to check the immigration status of anyone stopped or detained for legal reasons, but struck down other portions of law aimed at discouraging illegal immigration. Justice Elena Kagan recused herself from the case, having defended the government position on the case in her previous role as U.S. solicitor general." Read more below.

Supreme Court upholds key part of Arizona immigration law, strikes down rest By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 1 hr 55 mins ago The Supreme Court upheld a key part of Arizona's tough anti-illegal immigration law in a 5-3 decision on Monday that allows police officers to ask about immigration status during stops. That part of the law, which never went into effect because of court challenges, will now immediately be enforced in Arizona. Other parts of the law, including a provision that made it a state crime for illegal immigrants to seek work, will remain blocked, as the justices affirmed the Federal Government's supremacy over immigration policy. Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court's Swing Vote, wrote the opinion, and was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor. Conservative Justices Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas partially dissented, saying the entire law should have been upheld. In the opinion, Justice Kennedy wrote that t ...

Clinton's solicitor general Walter Dellinger went on a bit of a rant about the current Supreme Court Justices at lunch yesterday.
Today congress has made thoughtful joke in the name of minority reservation in supreme court. In spite of Attorney General present in the capital today, matter was argued by Mr Gavrav Banarjee, Additional Solicitor General & he failed to convince to the court. It shows the sincerity of congress lead UPA government at centre. Congress is habitual to cheating to the Muslim as a whole. This is the true face of congress and same thing congress is doing last more than 60 years. Now its your terns to respond in the same way, teach a new lesson to congress in future election. Hon`ble Supreme Court decline their prayers. Notice has been issued in the above said matters. So, i request all of you to make a common platform to fight such mind set, and make long policy to achieve it. Also be ready to sacrifice.
Source: DC Quota or no support: MIM MIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday expre-ssed anguish over AP High Court quashing the 4.5 per cent sub-quota for minorities, carved out of 27 per cent reservations meant for OBCs (Other Backward Classes) in public employment and education. Seeking immediate intervention of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Mr Owaisi said the Centre should take up the issue seriously and ensure reservation for Muslims and other minorities. The Centre should appeal to the Supreme Court, he added. “The Centre has taken the issue lightly. Why did the Centre appoint only an assistant solicitor-general instead of attorney-general, as was done in the case of Lanco Hills, Wakf issue and others? The government has failed to provide proper data. The whole approach to the case was casual,” he fumed. The MIM chief added, “I request the PM to take the issue seriously or he will be blamed for the fiasco. It’s an erroneous judgement. His Lordship has come to a wrong conclusion. Reservation ...
Michael Sata flanked by the Minister of Justice Sebastian Zulu, Attorney General Mumba Malila, Solicitor General Musa Mwenya and Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mutembo Nchito, stressed the need for constant dialogue and interaction between the executive and the judiciary.

The President just announced that he nominates Elena Kagan, current Solicitor General, to the Supreme Court bench vacated by John Paul Stevens. Kagan is a liberal and the former dean of Harvard Law School. She has been criticized because, as dean, she banned Army recruiters on the university’s campus based on her position on homosexual and *** rights and her disagreement with the military’s position. She recently came into the spotlight after national media reported that she is a *** and would be the first on the Supreme Court if appointed. At age 50, she would be a young appointment and most likely be on the Court for years to come. The next phase of the nomination process takes Kagan’s nomination to the Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Texas Senator John Cornyn sits. If she passes the committee, the final step takes her nomination before the full Senate for a vote.President Nominates Elena Kagan to Supreme Court
Amicus brief authored by Seth Waxman, a former Solicitor General and prominent D.C. attorney, and signed by an impressive list of 86 former DOJ officials and federal judges in the case of Sholom Rubashkin v. United States of America. Among the signatories are 27 federal judges, 2 attorneys general, 1 Inspector General, 2 FBI Directors, 4 Deputy Attorneys General and 1 Solicitor General, urging the Supreme Court to take his case and overturn the 8th Circuit decision that upheld his conviction as not being a violation of due process:
Goodooga, northwest NSW, November 8th, 2011.By Michael Anderson It appears that the courts of NSW are standing firm on their consistent practice to exercise jurisdiction over Aboriginal people despite the amended 1872/75 Pacific Islanders Act. While some judges understand the legal conundrum, the frustration is that some are no doubt asking themselves: what law does apply to Aboriginal people? This question arose in a number of criminal cases in 1827 in South Australia, Victoria in 1836 and NSW in 1842. After the NSW case, the NSW Supreme Court judge John Walpole Willis commented that in his opinion jurisdiction over Aboriginal people must be made definite by an act of the British parliament. In response, Governor George Gipps wrote to secretary of state, Lord Stanley, on January 24, 1842 informing him that despite decisions of the local Supreme Courts that Aborigines were amenable to the British law, he requested at the behest of Judge Willis that the Attorney and Solicitor General of England put this ma ...
"A prosecutor ... may receive absolute immunity from suit for acts violating the Constitution in order to advance important societal values." -Elena Kagan, Solicitor General, 2009
Donald Verrilli (U.S. Solicitor General): "It is our position because the Constitution vests exclusive authority over immigration matters with the national government. Justice Scalia: "Well all that means, it gives authority over naturalization, which we've expanded to immigration. But all that means is that the government can set forth the rules concerning who belongs in this country. But if, in fact, somebody who does not belong in this country is in Arizona, Arizona has no power?

Fight Against Obama Supreme Court Coup Continues April 11th, 2012 • 6:47 AM The forces resisting Obama's coup against the Supreme Court have not stopped. Tuesday, Rep Lamar Smith (R-TX), chair of the House Judiciary Committee, implicitly raised the Constitutional question in Obama's recent statements. In a comment posted on Politico, he said that Obama's recent statements "are more than disappointing — they're disturbing," and demanded that Obama "show respect for the system of government that our Founders established." He noted that Congress, too, has "[borne] the brunt of Obama's ridicule," that legitimate Congressional inquiries on Fast and Furious, by himself and others, have been dismissed by this administration as if "[swatting away] flies at a picnic." Rep. Smith has been on Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan's trail for the past year, demanding her recusal from the entire proceedings, because of her prior involvement, in her role as Solicitor General, in Obamacare's passage and in formulating t ...
